Hong Kong has often been seen as a gateway to Asia. And that’s not only true due to its connectivity to countries such as Australia, but it’s also very much the case when it comes to its cuisine.
Hong Kong’s food scene is above and beyond the already great experience, you’d expect from a city that straddles Asian and Western cultures.
Hong Kong Wine & Dine – Taste Around Town is a festival which reflects the popularity of a Hong Kong dining experience. It includes the HK Bar Show and Sip & Savour in LKF.
The HK Bar Show is inspired by Hong Kong’s more traditional and contemporary elements.
Talented mixologists from 60 participating bars and restaurants create cocktail recipes and food pairings with local ingredients and spirits.
Sip & Savour in LKF is all about mixing up the cocktails also. Popular with wine enthusiasts and cocktail aficionados, guests embark on a gastronomic adventure in Hong Kong’s most popular nightlife hot spot, LKF or Lan Kwai Fong.
It goes without saying that food plays a big part in the lives of Hong Kong’s residents.
Many destination reviews speak of people who haven’t dined at home for years, such is the selection and affordability of restaurants in the city.
According to Restaurant magazine, 4 of the best 100 restaurants in the world are in the Harbour City, while 78 Michelin star restaurants and 5 spots listed in Asia’s 50 best restaurants call Hong Kong home.
In a city as populated as this, dining out is just as much a social activity as it is one of eating.
There are options to cater for every socioeconomic section of the population, and therefore travellers.
You’ll be able to find something to eat while spending as little or as much as you want.
Great dining is a given at Tin Hung. A popular eatery with locals and tourists alike, this spot has its signature roast goose shipped in from Foshan daily alongside honey-glazed char siu and drunken chicken.
Small shop charm meets world-class cuisine at Tak Kee where pork tripe and peppercorn soup sit alongside spiced marinated goose liver, crispy chitterlings stuffed with glutinous rice and oyster omelette. It’s the spot that travellers will have imprinted on their mind every time they crave a bite to eat.
